SCORM + WordPress

Below is a walk-through the various sections of the plug-in, as well as explanations of how to use it.

Overview

wp-overview
The main page of the SCORM Cloud plugin gives you your overall report on training up front. This is the same kind of report as you see in SCORM Cloud itself – showing you how much time learners are taking, average scores and so forth. At the top of the page are links to take you to your SCORM Cloud account if you need to make changes there (like upgrade your account or change billing information or add an admin) and a link to the full report for your courses that will let you drill down to individual answers and so forth.

Settings

wp-settings
In order to work with SCORM Cloud, the WordPress plugin needs to have credentials that say you have an account and allow your WordPress site to communicate with SCORM Cloud. The settings area is where those go – your appID and secret key. You can find these in the Apps section of SCORM Cloud when you login there. Just copy and paste them over to the appropriate sections and click update. SCORM Cloud and WordPress will start talking to each other and you should see reports on the overview page and any courses you have in SCORM Cloud on your course list.

Courses

wp-courses
You can manage and add courses in this section. At the top is an option to upload a course; just choose a file and click submit. The uploaded course will then show up in your list at the bottom. This list is synced with your SCORM Cloud account, so courses uploaded there will show up in the list in WordPress and courses uploaded in WordPress will show up in your SCORM Cloud course list. And there are links to let you preview the course, check the reports and delete as needed.

Training

wp-training
Manage invites to some or all of your users here. When you create a training, SCORM Cloud invites learners to come take a course. You can select to open a course to all users, selected users or by WordPress role. (So yes, your learners need to be users of your blog or site and log-in to access their training.) Once you create the training, that course then shows up in the training widget for the logged in user. So if you do a training for Math 101 and invite Sam and Sarah to take the course, Sam and Sarah will see the course listed in the training widget the next time they log in to the blog.

Posts and Pages

wp-addcourse
You can include a course directly into a blog post or on a web page. Right up on the formatting toolbar, you’ll see a button for SCORM Cloud – a cloud in visual mode, text saying “SCORM Cloud Training” in HTML mode. Place your cursor in the post or page where you want the course to go, then click the button. Select your course and set your criteria, then click embed. You’ll see something like “[scormcloud.training:4c44fc5a2ea22]” in your text, but rest assured you’ll see the gray box with the course in the post or page itself.

Widgets

wp-widgets
There are two kinds of widgets that come with the SCORM Cloud plug-in. The catalog widget shows all the courses you have uploaded for use in the plug-in to users. So logged in users can see your entire catalog of courses. The user training widget shows the logged in user all the courses you have invited them to take, click the course to launch it and check their score once they take it.
